    A great book about bereavement, loss, friendship and living life to the best of your ability Ever since Eva s mum died her dad has been scared of letting her do anything but then she meets the boy next door, Jamie Then Eva has to choose between making a friend or listening to her dad A great book which was sad in places.

    It was far too sad and too serious for a children book, but good none the less

    Caldecott says she loves to write about ordinary children doing extraordinary things and it s one of the things that I have loved about the previous two books I ve read And if that s what you love about her books than this is no different, Eva and Jamie are two extremely likeable ordinary children I m impressed with the way that Caldecott s characters are always so different and yet completely believable In this book I related to Eva so much The first scene where she spies her new neighbours Caldecott says she loves to write about ordinary children doing extraordinary things and it s one of the things that I have loved about the previous two books I ve read And if that s what you love about her books than this is no different, Eva and Jamie are two extremely likeable ordinary children I m impressed with the way that Caldecott s characters are always so different and yet completely believable In this book I related to Eva so much The first scene where she spies her new neighbours moving in could almost be my life And the fact that Eva so easily slips into a fantasy world, well that could still be my life The story really kicks off when she and Jamie, who come from very different backgrounds become friends partly because they both do disappear into imaginary worlds At the time the children are volunteering at a soon to be youth centre and I have to confess to wondering about health and safety after I d finished reading the book As the story unfolds we discover why they feel the need to escape and there are some very poignant moments as we discover who these characters really are The way Caldecott describes their emotional journey completely carried me away, even though, I personally found it difficult to reconcile with the mum s behaviour.But, I was so into these two characters that I was halfway through the book before I started to wonder when the ice cream came into it But don t worry because when it does, it s like a scene straight out of a slapstick comedy and yet everything that is happening is completely logical.The ending as I m discovering with Caldecott had me reaching for the tissues, partly because both of them had taken that little step closer to growing up, but also because they were a littlesure of themselves

    Great fun kids adventure from a skilled writer of family dramaElen Caldecott is one of the best writers of kids contemporary adventures She excels at writing sympathetically and not patronisingly about kids in non traditional family situations, giving them interesting adventures so that the point of the story is not look, here s a kid from a non traditional family , but rather here s a kid doing X.I especially like the anti judgmental message in this novel, in which our main character, Eva Great fun kids adventure from a skilled writer of family dramaElen Caldecott is one of the best writers of kids contemporary adventures She excels at writing sympathetically and not patronisingly about kids in non traditional family situations, giving them interesting adventures so that the point of the story is not look, here s a kid from a non traditional family , but rather here s a kid doing X.I especially like the anti judgmental message in this novel, in which our main character, Eva, has new neighbours whom everyone knows are trouble Eva s view is different she finds their loud and chaotic family intriguing, in contrast to her own very quiet and calm family just her and her very protective Dad.The plot is engaging, mostly because Eva and Jamie and those around them are entirely convincing and interesting characters We can t help but feel sorry for Eva, keen to please her Dad but also to have a life of her own And Jamie, seen through Eva s eyes as he escapes by lying on shed roof, is endearing and engaging in his own right There are some genuinely funny moments, and plenty of points where we re worried for the characters and all seems doomed The chase scene alluded to in the title and on the cover, is a fabulous climax.Overall, I would absolutely recommend this for 9 12s, especially those who enjoy character led adventures

    Eva has an over protective Dad, for good reason Aware that she needs to get out and meet friends he allows her to get involved with a community project to do up an old park lodge so that it can be turned into a centre for young people Shy and nervous Eva encounters a mix of children but bonds quicker with her next door neighbour, Jamie McIntyre, who has also been signed up to help Jamie s loud and colourful family are not liked by Eva s dad and she struggles with pleasing her father who doesn Eva has an over protective Dad, for good reason Aware that she needs to get out and meet friends he allows her to get involved with a community project to do up an old park lodge so that it can be turned into a centre for young people Shy and nervous Eva encounters a mix of children but bonds quicker with her next door neighbour, Jamie McIntyre, who has also been signed up to help Jamie s loud and colourful family are not liked by Eva s dad and she struggles with pleasing her father who doesn t want her to have contact with this boy from next door and wishing to spendtime with Jamie Ultimately this leads to the adventure that involves an ice cream van, an adventure I must admit I found unbelievable but which is portrayed with good imagery and humour.It is an easy and pacy read about growing up, developing true friendships and the experience of emotions anger, laughter and tears that are all part of the process As female characters dominate the narrativeso than male the story islikely to appeal to girls 10 13 than boys in general
